Makers Mark & Four Roses
Private Select Barrel Sampling Today from 3 to 6pm!

I set out to Kentucky for my first time last year and had the privilege of visiting both Makers Mark and Four Roses among other distilleries. Both visits were really great & informative trips, I felt a bit like I'd been there before, but I think that was just the whiskey talking. I'll not get too deep into describing everything as I have set up photo albums on our Facebook page with more detailed info and applicable photos. Two of my favorite stops were at the above distilleries where I was given the unique opportunity to select, and blend, private barrels for Argonaut. I know you're thinking "What a hard working and diligent employee, with an incredibly difficult job", and you're right. I woke up early and headed out to Four Roses aging and bottling facility first thing. I've always been a fan of Four Roses Private Barrel program as they have a wide range of flavor profiles which allow one to buy truly unique expressions. In this case I ended up selecting an OBSF barrel which is a high rye content recipe. Ten months later this little beauty arrive in store. On my second trip I headed out to Makers Mark to get involved in their Private Select program, the name of which doesn't really do justice to the process. We spent the day mingling Makers Mark bourbons, each aged with different stave finishes. So rather than selecting a whiskey created in my absence, I actually was able to create a flavor profile unlike anything made prior. This is a fairly involved process, which is what I really enjoyed about it. I have again created a Facebook photo album which outlines the time I spent with Makers Mark.

I'll be in store today and we'll be cracking both bottles for you to enjoy as well as discussing the processes that brought these lovely barrels to Colorado. Makers Mark will have a hand engraver on site custom engraving any Makers bottles purchased, and I'll have a slide show running photos from both visits. We'll be sampling my Private Select Makers (110.9 proof, very spicy), Private Select Four Roses OBSF (122pf), Makers Mark Cask strength, and Makers 46.

This sampling will run today only from 3 to 6pm. We look forward to sharing with you & getting your thoughts on the barrels. Feel free to ring us at 303-831-7788 with any questions you may have, we'll see you soon!

As per usual, Argonaut, and only Argonaut, Has it!
